A Place By the Fire

Save me a place by the fire,
Where I may warm my weary bones.
Where I may listen to old tales,
And hear the ancient songs.

Save me a spot by the hearth,
Where I may rest my young head,
Upon the mother's lap,
And dream of words unsaid.

Save me a story or two,
The songs I live every day.
Let me take my place among those
Who breathe life into the tales we sing.

Save me a place by the fire,
Safe and lively and warm.
Save me a place in your heart.
There I'll ever be safe from harm.
